According to Symrise, SymSoft Scalp has a mode of action regulating itching mediators to target itching at its source and ensure scalp comfort while also protecting and repairing hair fiber. Itching results from a series of neurosensory reactions based on cross-communication between skin cells and the activation of nerve endings. The ingredient modulates the activation of receptors involved in the release of itch mediators at two different levels, thus alleviating the itching sensation. Reportedly, with the use of the ingredient, the scalp feels better in five days.

SymSoft Scalp is suitable for use in shampoos, conditioners and other hair care products. It also is said to strengthen hair’s resistance to damage, such as that caused by bleaching.

“Thanks to our decades of expertise in skin care, we have an in-depth understanding of what causes itching,” says Marcia Paula, global product director for hair care at Symrise. “We have incorporated this knowledge into the development of SymSoft Scalp so we can provide a product that’s tailored to the specific needs of the scalp.”
